The carved granite slab above the entrance of Tung Chung Fort casting with the 12th year of Daoguang reign (1832) of the Qing Dynasty suggests that the Fort might have built in that year. It was built for defending against the intrusion of pirates along the coastal area. The Fort was later used as a police station, and then occupied by Wa Ying College, Tung Chung Rural Committee and the Public Primary School of Tung Chung. Today, there are 6 old canons remaining on the Fort, witnessing Hong Kong's old days of instability.
Tung Chung Fort was declared a monument in 1979.
